Von Maur to Make New York Debut
September 13, 2013
Davenport, Iowa-based Von Maur Department Stores will open its first New York store on Oct. 26. Located just outside of Rochester, N.Y., at Eastview Mall in Victor, the 140,000-sq.-ft. store also marks the retailer’s first location in the Northeast. Previously occupied by Bon Ton, the mall space underwent a complete reconstruction to achieve Von Maur's signature exterior brick façade with arching entryways accented by a copper roof and cupolas. Inside, open floor plans, antiques and original artwork create a residential ambiance. The store also features an interactive, life-sized tree in the children’s department and an antique pub, motorcycle and television in the men’s areas. Currently, Von Maur operates 27 stores. In the past two years, the company has opened two stores in Georgia, and plans to expand into Alabama and Oklahoma between November 2013 and November 2014.
